Aromatic Rice (Bariis Udgoon) الأرز البسمتي بالبهارات - This rice dish is for those days when we grill, when we want a rice dish that is both easy and quick. It is recommended to soak basmati rice for at least an hour, so the grains will become elongated during cooking. However, for this dish we usually skip this step or let the rice soak for just the amount of time needed to prepare the rest of the ingredients, which is about 20 minutes to half an hour.
